Ford and Postmates are teaming up to make a self-driving delivery car. Ford asked Postmates to test deliveries in their self-driving cars. This news was unveiled at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. Postmates’ customers will be chosen randomly to receive deliveries from a self-driving car. There is going to be someone in the car but users have to follow the instructions provided from the app. Tests will begin at the end of March.

Ford’s interests are to operate in the cities. They also announced they’re working with a wireless company, Qualcomm, on technology that will allow their vehicles to communicate with other cars. pedestrians, cyclists, and traffic lights.

But, pedestrians and cyclists would need to carry smartphones at all times in order for autonomous vehicles to identify them.
